Opera < 9.60 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 800821


The remote host contains a web browser that is affected by several issues.


The version of Opera installed on the remote host is earlier than 9.60 and is reportedly affected by several issues :
- Specially crafted URLs can cause Opera to crash or allow arbitrary code execution.
- Once a Java applet has been cached, a page that can predict the cache path for that applet can load it from cache thereby causing it to run in the security context of the local machine, allowing for reading of other files from the cache.


Upgrade to version 9.60 or higher.
